Default Rooting after Official 2.2 Update

I have rooted my Captivate before the official 2.2 update through AT&T but since the update, I have not been able to find an update.zip file that works. I get the E:Signature error. There is no lag fix software loaded. I do have Wave Secure running. Any ideas where I can find the most up to date...update.zip.

Thanks

I just got thru using AIO tool. Of course I flashed back to stock, rooted and then flashed a ROM. Not sure if this will help.

I thought the oneclickroot was still working. Try it and let us know.

I've almost never had a problem rooting and installing custom roms on a Captivate until a friend of mine got an RMA replacement with the official 2.2 pre loaded...

Anyone happen to find a solution yet?

Super one click will root after the factory 2.2 update but in order to use update.zip and clockwork recovery you need to update the kernel to 2e using odin3 there are other threads discussing this which is how I found out how to do it.

Default SuperOneClick v1.7 does not work

So I tried the SuperOneClick to hopefully root my Captivate nice and easy. Nope. I updated the official 2.2 on 3/18 and tried it. According to SuperOneClick it was successful. But when I go to Titanium Backup can't get the root rights so I can uninstall all of the bloatware that came with 2.2. The superuser app is there, and I've even gone back to the market and downloded the busybox again. Still nothing. I'm really stoked that the 2.2 is finally on my phone, But now I can't get the bloatware off?!!!

You have to reboot the phone after installing super one-click for the root to take effect. Had to learn that after trying 10 times.

wtf...I have tried the one click method and can't get it to work. It doesn't respond when I use it. I have rooted my old captivate using the update.zip method and was done in 30 seconds. Any plans to create another one for Froyo updated captivates? I'm sick of this crap AT&T bloatware on my phone and want it gone. (If nothing else)
